Texas Injustice: Family Members Speak Out

Monday, August 4, 8:00 PM
MonkeyWrench Books, 110 E. North Loop Blvd.

Family members of death row inmates tell their stories about the criminal injustice system. Featuring Sandra Reed, mother of Rodney Reed, innocent on death row; Lawrence Foster, grandfather of Kenneth Foster Jr., who came within hours of an execution before winning a commutation of his sentence; Jeannine Scott, wife of wrongly convicted Yogurt Shop defendant, Michael Scott; and Delia Perez Meyer, sister of falsely accused death row inmate, Louis Castro Perez.

This event is part of a series of events sponsored by MonkeyWrench Books called Beyond the Bars: Local struggles against the Prison Industrial Complex. During the weekend of September 26-28, Oakland, California will play host to Critical Resistance 10, celebrating a decade of struggle against the Prison Industrial Complex. In the month before Critical Resistance, Monkeywrench Books will be hosting a series of prison-related events every Monday in August, featuring films, local organizations, and individuals directly affected by the prison industrial complex.
